I’m Wendy. I make things, happen!

I thrive on working with other people, sharing ideas, exploring hidden stories
and making things happen. Sometimes I work in educational settings,
at other times community events – it all depends on how we can make what I do fit your needs.

I’m an Artist and Creative Practitioner based in Medway, Kent.

I volunteer for the Kent Association for the Blind, running two art groups for blind and partially sighted residents of Medway and Gravesend. You can read more about this work on this blog site KAB Medway Art Group.  I am passionate about this work and it directly feeds my creative practice. I was involved in Rochester Cathedral’s research into creating a tactile interpretation of the Baptismal Fresco by Sergei Fyodorov, and subsequently commissioned to create the bronze tactile interpretation now on permanent display. I am currently working with The Beaney House of Art and Knowledge and Canterbury Cathedral as part of the ‘Sensing Culture’ project, aiming to open the arts and heritage to blind and partially sighted visitors.

 

I believe strongly that disability is not an impairment to creativity.  Art is for all regardless of age, ability or background.

Artistic Practice.

I thrive on collaborating. My artistic practice revolves around the people I meet and my responses are triggered by situations. I use materials to tell my story and if I can say it in a shadow, all the better for it. I invite you to touch the art work I make and very happy to hear to what you think about ‘touch’ and ‘do not touch’.
